The Sacramento Ballet explores Spain, Mexico and Cuba in a program of dances that are at times wistful and hopeful, and sometimes so brightly energetic they elicits squeals. Septime Webre’s beautiful Juanita y Alicia, inspired by an old photograph from pre-revolutionary Cuba, is outstanding. Th, F, Sa 7pm, Su 1pm, W 6pm. Through 5/25. $57. E.
